Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Sharma Leadership International CEO Robin Sharma makes his living taking men and women to the next level. In The Great Guide, he presents 101 memorable tips to enable readers to get to world class in both their personal and professional lives. Sharma's strategies include suggestions for achieving work-life balance and ways to experience more fulfillment in and out of the office. A keeper.
BookPage
“Feels like you’re having a conversation with the author, leaving you inspired to live every day to the fullest.”
New Age Retailer
“Like having a really cool big brother show you the ropes on the first day of high school.”
Play Magazine
An easy-to-digest 101-item buffet of life-altering advice.
Publishers Weekly
Though Sharma rejects the guru label, it's hard not to think of the CEO of the training and coaching firm Sharma Leadership International that way after reading this slim volume of leadership and life advice. In two-page chapters with catchy titles and memorable anecdotes, this author of five bestsellers (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, etc.) dishes out wisdom for white-collar professionals on everything from goal setting and time management to figuring out your talents. In a chapter called "Harvey Keitel and Windows of Opportunity," he tells how he saw the Reservoir Dogs star and walked in the other direction-not toward him, as he has with most celebrities-and his regret over not seizing that opportunity. In "Your Schedule Doesn't Lie," Sharma highlights the need to schedule things you really want to do in your life. In "Sell Your Desk," he advocates getting out of the office to become a better performer in business. A keen observer of life and business, Sharma frames his wisdom in a friendly, accessible way that will appeal to readers at every level of their careers. (Jan.)

Chapter One

I'm No Guru

The media sometimes calls me a leadership (or self-help) "guru." I'm not. I'm just an ordinary guy who happens to have learned ideas and tools that have helped many human beings reach their best lives and many organizations get to world class.

But I must be really clear: I'm no different from you. I have my struggles, my frustrations and my own fears--along with my hopes, goals and dreams. I've had good seasons and some deeply painful ones. I've made some spectacularly good choices and some outrageously bad mistakes. I'm very human--a work in progress. If I have ideas that you find insightful, please know it's simply because I spend my days focused on the knowledge you are about to experience. Thinking about practical ways to help you play your biggest game as a human being and reach greatness. Dwelling on how I can help companies get to the extraordinary. Do anything long enough and you'll get some depth of insight and understanding about it. Then they'll call you a guru.

A man at a signing I did at a bookstore in Bangalore, India, heard me say, "I'm no guru." He came up to me and said: "Why are you so uncomfortable being called a guru? 'Gu' simply means 'darkness' in Sanskrit and 'ru' simple means 'dispel.' So the word 'guru' simply speaks ofone who dispels the darkness and brings more understanding and light." Nice point. Made me think.

I've had good seasons and some deeply painful ones. I've made some spectacularly good choices and some outrageously bad mistakes. I'm very human-a work in progress.

I guess my discomfort stems from the fact that if you think I'm different from you, then you might say, "Well, I can't do the kinds of things Robin talks about because he has talents and abilities I don't have. All the stuff he talks about is easy for him to do. He's this guru." Nope. Sorry to disappoint you. I'm just a guy working hard to make the best of his days, trying to be a great single dad to my two wonderful children and hoping he's--in some way--making a difference in peoples' lives. No guru here. But I do like the "dispelling the darkness" point. Need to learn more about that one. Maybe some guru can help me.

Continues...

    Empowering Wisdom Made Simple

    By weaving powerful real-life storytelling and numerous timely great quotes to convey wisdom of the ages, Robin Sharma does a fantastic job of communicating 101 bold yet simple truths that can explode your happiness and success in life as well as in business. I personally thoroughly enjoyed Robin Sharma¿s easing conversational writing style and humble approach to these sometimes touchy topics. While some of these jolts of wisdom may on the surface seem like common sense, I for one certainly needed to hear them again. This is one of those rare books that should become a perennial read for all ¿ it certainly will for me. Though this book is a quick and easy read, I highly recommend that you don¿t let the power of each of the 101 gems-of-advice slip past you. I got the most value by taking the time to reflect on the key point of each gem and identifying action items for myself that would make the key points stick.
